stock intercooler

does the stock intercooler have metal ends and tubes that connect to the intercooler boots? trying to figure out if i have a stock intercooler or not. I know that the 6.0's have plastic ends... also, what is the difference in size between the 6.0 and 7.3 intercoolers?

early '99 converted to late '99 F-350 dually, 4x4, 4 door, long bed, 6 speed. Midwest transmissions 05+ zf-6 transmission with their short throw shifter and SB clutch. Rosewood 180cc with 80% nozzles, Termy modded 17* HPOP, International bellowed up pipes, fs-2500, DP Tunes. A few other things here and there...
dually club member.. Why replace 5 tires when you can replace seven? I like my training wheels...

With you having an early 99...you have an all metal intercooler. Beginning with the 99.5 models...they began to put plastic end tanks in.

the 6oh intercooler is roughly 30 percent bigger. You can see a side by side here. The 6L intercooler has the orange covers.

Here is a writeup on the 6L install in a 7.3L truck. When I did mine...I took off the radiator core support. It made things much more accessible and no draining of the radiator was required.

thanks dave, and the inlets are the same, but require some modifications??? have you found anything since you did it that would have made it easier?

Just make sure that you have all the boots necessary before you begin. Other than that...take your time...keep track of all the nuts and screws...and you should have no problem. Your overflow tank may also have to be moved just a bit to get the intercooler in.

$200 shipped probably isn't that bad of a price. Yes...the boots are the extra ones. I ordered mine from LIPD.
